Touchpoint article: Applying Service Design to the SDN Chapter Foundation Process

In the summer of 2016, several members of the SDN in Germany expressed their interest to build up a local service design community. When the headquarters invited us for a German SDN Chapter ‘revival’ meeting in fall 2016, we were excited about this opportunity. However, as riveting as it was to indulge in discussions and idea generation, it was crucial to channel this energy and turn it into concrete activities towards building up a new Chapter.

The first challenge – assembling a core team that was eager and dedicated to bringing the Chapter to life – was achieved within one month. But how could you ensure working in the right direction from the very beginning?
